AMSTERDAM: Air France-KLM says the company will cancel its flights to Iran as of April, leaving Germany's Lufthansa as the sole European carrier offering service to Tehran.

Spokesman Joost Ruempol said Saturday the decision to end the Amsterdam-Tehran route was made for economic, not political reasons.

KLM is still selling tickets daily for now, though the number of flights per week will be curtailed significantly later this month before halting entirely in April.

As part of a review of routes, the company is also halting service to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Khartoum, Sudan.
